About the Book
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the sons of God.”

Matthew 5:9

In this new Berenstain Bears 8x8 book, Blessed are the Peacemakers, Brother and Sister have a wide circle of friends at Bear Country School and they get along with pretty much everyone. But not all their friends get along with each other. Too Tall and his bullying gang, for instance, are often in conflict with Cousin Fred, Ferdy Factual, and their friends. So what happens when the cubs all need to work together on the annual school play? Brother and Sister have to decide whether they should “mind their own business” or get involved as peacemakers and try to calm the troubled waters.

My Take on the Book
In this day of children being bullied, it is nice to see a story which brings to light the fact that we all need to find ways to help our children find peace with others, even if there are major differences to overcome.This story illustrates differences that children can encounter and also shows how a solution that involves compromise can be discovered.

I think this story could open up a discussion about resolving conflicts. Maybe the adults can assist with a step by step process for the challenging situations. 

Mike Berenstain has certainly written a story his parents would be proud of. It reinforces the values his parents wrote about for years.
